Went to Reithalle last week with a couple of colleagues from Bern and Chiasso for a dinner before a team event the next day. Ambiance was good - a big group was there for an apéro and was blocking the entrance - although a bit too noisy for my taste - could hardly hear each other speak around our table.... More

Long tables, German touch with meals and beers... A very nice place along the canal, not so far from the City center and the Hauptbahnhof (central railway station). We tried the Italian meals... a very surprizing idea ! Truffle pasta or with lemon taste, very nice. Outside, with a warm evening... not alone on our table... but a kind place.

It was our last night in Zurich before our group part ways. The atmosphere was great for the 6 of us. The restaurant is a converted large stable decorated with antique metal hay feeders/troughs and high wooden beams and cobblestone floor. There are simple wood tables and seats. There is a small bar and lounge area that does not match... More

Great to sit outside with a very nice atmosphere. Service is kind and the food tastes very good. We were there for lunch, I will come back.

1. they put reserved signs on all tables even though there are no reservations. 2. you have to get your drinks at the bar. 3. the drinks are nothing special at all. Small, expensive and not very tasty. 4. it took our waitress forever to take our order and it took even longer for our food to be served. 5.... More

If you look for a very nice place to have a meal in Zurich, possibly nearby the center of the city, Reithalle is probably one of the best choices. It can be easily reached with public transportation and the atmosphere inside is absolutely great. On the other hand, I was expecting something more from the food, which could be better... More

The place itself could be nice for drinks. Unfortunately we went for dinner. The staff was OK but not really friendly. The interior is not nice for a restaurant if you have a closer look to the details. Now to the food: below average and nothing to be repeated. For the price they charge this was nothing. I won't be... More

The Reithall Restaurant, in the Gessneralle complex, has a similar design as that of the Stall 6 on the opposite side of the hall, but this room is mostly wooden tables and chairs lining the room for the dining hall. There is a small bar with about five stools and a sofa and lounge section near the entrance to the... More
